Policing Their Own


An internal investigation found that Clearwater, Florida, police Lt. Richard Crean improperly accessedthe Florida Driver and Vehicle Information Database 100 times over a two-year period. Crean's searches focused largely on women between the ages of 24 and 33 and included a local television reporter and the wives and daughters of fellow officers. The department has recommended the city demote him to sergeant and suspend him for five days.
